Hello!

My name is indeed Les Wade, the author of several small volumes of poetry posted to the Internet Archive Database. However, I am not that Les Wade who was "a Canadian middle-distance runner. He competed in the men's 1500 metres at the 1932 Summer Olympics" and whose date of death, according to the Wikipedia entry you've linked to, is unknown. I assure you, I am alive and kicking, and sadly, am not Canadian. So I am asking you to please remove this spurious, misleading and totally false citation you have added to the following web page AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!

https://archive.org/search.php?query=creator%3A%22les+wade%22

Thanks

Les Wade (still among the living)

Oh, p.s.

I am not, repeat, not asking you to remove any of my books. I definitely want them to remain here at the Internet Archive. Simply remove or delete the link to Wikipedia you have inserted.

Again, thanks.

Les Wade (the living non-Canadian one)
